The International Phonetic Association (IPA) is providing three awards to cover the registration fee of students presenting at TIE2016. In accordance with the IPA scheme, applications are also invited from unemployed members of the IPA, members under 35, and members from low-income-level countries.
If you are interested in applying, send your application to the IPA Secretary. Application deadline is 22nd August (midnight). Please enter “TIE 2016 Student Award Application” in the subject line. Applications will be considered by a small selection committee set up by the IPA for this particular purpose, and the outcomes will be announced by 29th August.
Applications should consist of a front sheet itemising the name, address, affiliation, IPA membership number of the applicant, together with the final version of the abstract which has been accepted by the conference. The paper may be singly-authored or co-authored with one or more other researchers. Members who have previously received an IPA award for a previous conference are not excluded from applying for an award for TIE 2016.
In order to be eligible for an award, the applicant needs to be a member of the IPA (which is inexpensive and provides many benefits). For details and information on how to apply to be a member, a very easy process, please visit the IPA site.
